The Nerd Couch: What Would Parents Do for Their Kids?

ONCE UPON A TIME continues to amaze me with their portrayal of family drama, particularly parenthood.  They reinforces the ongoing theme of parents trying to do right by their children, but paying a hard price for it.  The show’s pilot began with Snow White and Prince Charming trying to save their baby daughter from the Evil …

The Nerd Couch: NERD COURAGE!

I was pondering the situations that geeks and nerds get into, with their social ups and downs, and I came to a sudden thought: Nerds have a lot of Courage! Not the kind of courage that lets you ball up your ‘chess hand’ and makes you punch the school quarterback in the face, though that …
